Steely Dan - Bodhisattva- ( live ,San Diego March 23, 1974)


 Donald Fagen said this song was "sort of a parody on the way Western people look at Eastern religion - sort of oversimplify it. We thought it was rather amusing - most people didn't get it."


                Bodhisattva

                Denny Dias , Walter Becker, Donald Fagen, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, Jim Hodder

In typically cryptic fashion, the Countdown To Ecstasy liner notes for the 1998 reissue said this of the song: "Dias the Bebopper meets Baxter the skunk beneath the Bo Tree in this altered blues."



"Dias" is Denny Dias, who played the first guitar solo on the track; "Baxter the skunk" is Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, who played the second solo.
